[ The Music Player, Advanced ]
With TapTunes, you will experience your music collection like never before. Touch, tap, drag, shake, swipe, pinch ‒ you've never been this close to your tunes!

By presenting albums visually in a random order, TapTunes brings you much closer to your music than you'd ever get by scrolling through an alphabetical list of artist names. You'll soon find yourself rediscovering old favorites and listening to those forgotten gems lurking around the edges of your music library.

After all, if a picture is worth a thousand words, why let words alone do all the talking for your music?

[ Context Switching ]
Have a long commute? If you listen to audiobooks or podcasts, TapTunes helps by making it dead simple to switch between music, audiobooks, and podcasts. You're never more than a tap away from that thrilling next chapter...or that killer guitar solo. Meanwhile, intuitive gesture controls make controlling your tunes a breeze, so you can keep your eyes on the road while driving.

[ Warning ]
You will be spoiled for other music players. Once you use TapTunes, you won't want to experience your music any other way.

What's New in Version 6.2.1

Version 6.2.1
- Fixed duplicate albums showing up when filtering by Playlist.


Version 6.2

New Features
- Album Artist support: it's back and better than ever! Well, as good as ever, anyway. Thanks for your patience.
- Search by Composer: Enjoy all those Beatles covers at once.
- Edge to Edge Landscape Display: nothing but you and your beautiful albums. If this is simply too much browsing pleasure for you, you can re-enable the top and bottom bars in Settings.

Additional Search Improvements

- Backgrounds are slightly more vibrant, while keeping text readable.

Bug Fixes
- Yep, those too.

Sad News
- I've removed the Album Shuffle feature (at least for now) since iOS no longer supports it. :_(
